Stuck at gdm start

I decided to dump my windows installation in favour of Fedora 29 Workstation, however when I try to boot up the LiveCD installation media I get stuck at "[ok] Started GNOME Display Manager".

Tried ctrl + alt + fn + F keys to get a console, however system appears unresponsive and after some time I get a #1 CPU has been stuck for 22s message, followed by absolutely nothing. Im trying to install on a MSI GE62 6QF laptop, with i7-6700HQ CPU and GTX 970m.

Any help is greatly appreciated since I'm still new to Linux.
